King Harald back at work

Norway’s 83-year-old King Harald V was cleared to go back to work this week, after several weeks of sick leave. He’ll be meeting the foreign minister on Thursday as usual and welcoming several new ambassadors to Norway.

The monarch has been in and out of the national hospital Rikshospitalet, suffering from exhaustion and shortness of breath. Last month doctors finally decided to replace a heart valve, and the operation went well.

Crown Prince Haakon has been taking over royal duties as regent but now the monarch was ready to resume them. King Harald will also be leading the weekly Council of State with the government at the Palace on Friday, with the crown prince present as well.
